There was a collective sigh of relief across Ireland yesterday evening as people took off their wet clothes and got into their cosy PJs.
It was a proper miserable one out there, made all the more depressing by the fact that it’s now April and we all thought spring was supposed to have sprung by now. Sure, look things are bound to pick up tonight, right? WRONG.
According to Met Éireann, we’re in for another bitter evening with temperatures set to fall to as low as minus three degrees. There will also be some sleet throughout the day before a misty night with a sharp frost takes hold. Yikes.
There will be ‘outbreaks of rain and sleet tomorrow affecting the eastern half of the country early on Friday morning’ while eastern counties will see ‘further heavy rain at nightfall.’
Thankfully, it looks like things will pick up by the weekend, with a ‘brighter and milder’ day on Saturday before a ‘bright day with sunny spells’ on Sunday. Both days should see highs of 14 degrees.
We’ll have earned it by that stage. A full outlook for the days ahead can be read here.
